Everything. There will be no longer be different cultures or ways of life. Everything will be dictated under a one world government.


I can't tell by your picture, but if that is you I think you look Asian of some sort. Tell me, how has living in the USA affected your culture? Do you feel you've lost it? Do you feel you are destroying American culture in some way?

It's kind of a odd proposition to fight against the idea of a one world government when we've never had one. I mean sure it's the one that "bad guys" tend to go for. Of course they do, they want all the power and they want to be in charge of everything. Sounds like a super villian's idea doesn't it? (I imagine "Dr. Evil" raising his pinkie as he proposes it) That's why it won't ever happen that way. That's not the one world government we would even get.

What if in 1995 I told you soon the internet would be covering most of the world and you'd be able to find just about any information in seconds? Or, what if in 2005 I told you that smart phones would soar in popularity and surpass the sales of even digital cameras and connect people in ways they never would have thought of? Someday we will get even better connected than we are now... and then another step, and then another. It's not necessarily the end of the world but eventually we are all going to be able to do things together we haven't even dreamed of. Will that be a one world government? Maybe not, but maybe we won't need one if we are all connected anyway.

So yea, is the world going to suddenly swap into a one world government any time soon? "Oh heck naw" In a hundred years maybe it could, and could it be more like the "the Federation of Planets" in Star Trek? Yes, but the aliens won't speak english and if they do exist they probably think we suck and won't talk to us. And dog fights in space actually look really boring.

Before any one world Government could work it would have to be a homogeneous society. Single culture... tribalism is too strong and an evolved trait. If attempted the massacres would make ww 2 look tame. Every group killing every group much like what is starting to happen with a hyper focus on identity politics... look up Colin Flaherty on Youtube.. Thats tribalism at work.. Obama gets in office and Race relations get worse than the 90's and 00's... Many examples throughout history.. hutu tutsee.. nazi jew... roman barbarian.. it is always the same and set principles divorced from ability to be altered has seemed to be most effective to combat it

Globalism doesn't mean one world government. Or is that something you read of info wars, the number one tinfoil hat website. Do you also think the government is trying to control people remotely with antenna things and stuff? Globalism is about creating a worldwide market and services by offering a free market to the entire world. Limiting this market will only end up biting the entire world in it's ass. It's also a tool to make countries depend on each other so that things like wars doesn't break out

I would say that in large Info Wars makes more sense than MSM... atleast right now.. maybe not 4 years ago but almost everything he talks about is leaked information... he says some crazy shit sometimes and comes to wrong conclusion often too.. but I think its closer to reality than what is offered to the masses by our own governments.. Stefan Molyneux is a better source for that kind of information, also backed by sound reasoning 99 percent of the time..

This is no longer a Republican Party vs Democratic Party issue. This is an issue of National sovereignty vs globalism. This is about a democratically elected government ruled via the Constitution of The United States vs The New World Order organized and run by the wealthy elite globalists from around the planet.

I didn't vote for Obama (the first time, I voted for McCain. The second time, I voted for Obama. I wanted Obama care to have a chance to work), so that he could give away America's sovereignty. I didn't agree with any such "world views" as he described in his response to the reporter, and in his speech to the U.N.

I didn't serve in the United States Marine Corps, nor swear to protect the Constitution of The United States of America, so that he could give the wealth of our country to other nations (via NAFTA (which Bill Clinton signed), TPP, and TTIP http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/21010-10-reasons-why-you-should-oppose-obamatrade), because he wanted to make globalism more attainable.

All you people who voted for Obama, did any of you know that he wanted to guide our country towards globalism, when you listened to his speeches on the campaign trail? Don't we want a better life for our own families in our own country? How can we have that if the wealthy elite use their influence to take it all from us, and give it all away so that they can build their one world government?

Liberalism used to be about eliminating poverty through government programs (welfare) in America. It used to be about protecting workers' rights and ensuring government paid health care. Now, however, I see that Liberalism has added a word to their title. Now it's Progressive Liberalism. Does that mean that Progressive Liberals want to give our national sovereignty away and make America into a region subservient to a world government?

Is this what Progressive Liberals really want?


Fortunately for your concerns Trump is an isolationist. He intends to pull back from all treaties, trade and military. Don't be surprised if Trump doesn't tie American involvement in NATO directly to member nations actually spending that 2% of GDP most of the EU has failed to do. And if he doesn't flat out kill NAFTA (something the Canadian president says he would welcome) it will definitely be renegotiated. That trans Pacific trade deal has effectively been strangled at birth with a Trump presidency. So chillax. No worries it looks like finally the US will stop being the world police and look inward. This also means that the rest of you who have been bashing the US for their involvement now get to step up and pay to play. Win loose or draw it looks like the US is stepping out for the next 4 years. Tag you all are it. Good luck with that lmao.

Anti-globalization policies have been doing countries like North Korea very well

If you walk inside the country it's like watching an old 1950s film. It's so cool

If there's one thing everyone can agree on with globalism is that there are many different definitions to the word globalism.

Yes globalism has been ramping up throughout the world, but Donald Trump's policies of making America first will hopefully help destroy some of this. Look at Great Britain and the brexit, the EU is falling apart slowly and dying hopefully it continues that way. All we can do is spread the news and help wake people up and make them aware of what is going on. Keep up the good topic thread posts my friend!!!

People are different. We were made different and we all have different tastes, ideas, and tolerances. forcing everyone to live with the same kind of government will never work. Progressives are always trying to make their utopia, but it can't exist simply because everyone has a different idea of what utopia would be. Not to say we can't all live in peace one day, but there has to be different choices of how to live.

Frankly the only way this world will have a single successful government is when we have the technology to leave this world. Then people who don't want to live under that one world government can leave and start their own world. I mean that is pretty much how America was founded. People from all over the world were fed up with their monarchy for one reason or another and wanted start over in a place they could be free and do their own thing.

PS: there's another small reason globalism is a bad idea. Power corrupts. absolute power corrupts absolutely. whoever gets put in charge of that one world will become corrupted. you can guarantee it.

I'm glad someone here gets it. Globalization led to China returning to capitalism, and it continues to open doors through the sharing of ideas and through contact between and awareness of culture. I don't really want to go back to the days when Japan was merely the "Mysterious Far East." If you'd grown up with some of the PBS documentaries coming out during the 70s, 80s, and 90s, I think you'd see globalism in a very different light. It sure beats Imperialism, in any case.

Except that one of the biggest hold-ups for Brexit is that they want to leave the EU without giving up their globalized trade agreements. That means that they are busy trying to secure new agreements with all the foreign nations with whom they currently have trade agreements through the EU. I'll also point out that Trump wants to chastise China for currency manipulation without understanding that they are actually keeping their currency artificially high. If they stopped manipulating their currency, it would make products from China cheaper than they already are. They used to keep their currency low, but that practice ended a number of years ago.

Any sort of political merging done between nation-states should be done democratically. If such an idea doesn't have a majority support in all countries involved then it has no legitimacy. It's like when a given population fights a proposed trade deal and the elite get all butt-hurt over it?
If there ideas were so great and fantastic, people would be at their nation capitals protesting/demanding that such deals are signed and put into effect. Perhaps the global elite is so out of touch, they do not realize the sort of pain and suffering the are causing in the lives of those they govern.

If any sort of "progress" of this type is ever going to gain support, those out-of-touch bureaucrats are going to need to step out of their gilded communities for a minute and see the consequences of their actions first hand and adjust accordingly.

Cultural/trade globalization is different than political globalization (one world government stuff).
I may have mixed feelings on the first type, but in current form completely opposed to the latter of the two.
